Meet Keelin Burns, our Jesse J. Kaplan MOVER of the Month! Keelin, along with her teachers and therapists, works very hard on her various physical activities throughout the day. While using the Rifton tram, she makes unprompted stepping motions and is getting better at keeping her head in the upright position while sitting. We are so proud of Keelin’s progress in the program and excited to say she is one of our Kaplan graduates this year. Congratulations Keelin and best of luck moving forward!

Kaplan’s MOVE™ (Mobility Opportunities via Education) program combines therapy and education to teach children with physical disabilities and complex needs the functional skills of sitting, standing and walking. MOVE™ aims to give children an opportunity to lead more independent and more fulfilling lives. For some, this might be learning to hold their own cup; for others it might be learning to walk independently to explore their environment.
